However those who knew the latter in the neighborhood, later began asking questions which were finally answered at the end of the day.

It actually took a visit to Mairamou’s family, to realize that her own mother was accomplice in the abortion of the pregnancy.

“How can a girl commit such a crime with the complicity of her mother, the one who is supposed to give advice to her daughter” said a neighbor.
